Fattest Day Ride – Pagan Bike Chicanery at Levis

Shortly after launching the #fattestdayride celebration, I started to think about what I should do to celebrate the Solstice. I thought that a pagan weekend of bike chicanery at Levis sounded like a good plan for what mi amigo, Erv Spanks reminded me is the third fat-bike holiday on the calendar. I somehow managed to […]

Stashers Bag Review by Andy Amstutz

JP gets REEB’ed  by  JP Syverud  Well, it finally happened.  My dream has finally come true.  I got REEB’d!  I have always wanted to have a custom fat bike built just for me. I sold a few bikes and other things lying around the house just to gather enough acorns to get this thing built.  Be warned, this isn’t for the faint of heart.  It took some sacrifice, but in the […]
